Police have urged drivers to be careful after heavy rain hit Suffolk, causing travel disruption across the region.
The Norfolk & Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team tweeted this morning to say there have already been five weather related incidents this morning.
Officers said: "Drive to the conditions not the speed limit.
"Lots of standing water in places. Be careful out there people"
As a result of spray on the roads, slow moving traffic is to be expected across the county and roads could be flooded due to heavy downpours.
